Mingxin + Kyler – Pittsburgh, North Shore Engagement Session

Mingxin + Kyler - Pittsburgh, North Shore Engagement Session

Mingxin and Kyler’s engagement session on the North Shore was of epic proportions.  Not 20 minutes into the shoot the sky darkened and the sky was practically illuminated with consistent lightning.  I knew that we did not have long to take cover before the sky completely opened.  We snapped a couple more portraits with that pre-storm twilight and then decided to get indoors to wait out the storm.   And what a storm it was!  Horizontal rain, some hail and some very close lightning bolts made me very happy we had made it indoors in time!

After about an hour the storm finally slowed down enough to head back down the Riverwalk and across the Clemente Bridge to where we were parked.  The city lights were beginning to come on and we took this as an opportunity to get city backdrop photos from the top of our parking garage.  Standing at the highest point with the city lights and a couple of rumbles of thunder still in the background was an amazing moment, scroll down to see the outcome.

Oh and when a couple says, “borrow our boat for your photos”, you borrow the boat.  Thankful for Pittsburgh generosity!

Cannot wait for their October wedding at the Renaissance.  I have a feeling it will be just as epic!


Aimee + Sean – Engagement Session

Aimee + Sean - Engagement Session

I have seriously been blessed with some incredible weather and couples lately for shoots, and this past Sunday was no exception. I met Aimee and Sean at Washington’s Landing and we walked the path along the river to the bridge to capture some images of the two of them. It usually takes people a little bit to warm up to being in front of the camera (I mean it’s not everyday that someone you don’t know very well is following you around with a camera asking you to kiss); but seriously, after the first shot series these two were old pros. I did not even have to ask Sean to lean in and kiss Aimee or to look into her eyes, he did it on his own; too sweet! I love how these images turned out and what rockstars they were in front of the camera! Cannot wait till their wedding next year! Enjoy!
